The Power of Lifelong Care

The Power of Relationships

The nine physicians of MHCS have chosen to work in Seward County. They are neighbors, parents, husbands and wives just like their patients. They believe in building a relationship with their patients that spans throughout a lifetime. The long-standing patient/doctor relationship leads to better communication, a better healthcare partnership, and ultimately better medical outcomes.

The Power of Collaboration

The MHCS Family Medical Centers of Seward, Milford and Utica are wholly committed to providing the best care possible. This commitment assures that our physicians will not only collaborate with patients but with other medical professionals as well, willing to refer patients to specialists when indicated or requested.

The Power of Prevention

A Family Physician is a specialist caring for patients throughout their lifetime. Patients benefit from the personal relationship and comprehensive medical history built over the years. A family doctor provides preventive services to help individuals avoid health issues or to identify them early. In many cases, problems that are found early are more likely to respond to treatment. Prevention measures include screening tests, vaccinations and health advice. Your doctor will recommend the services that are appropriate for you based on your age and medical family history.
